Core Values

What are your core values? Do you even know? Pick FIVE things that are super duper important to you. It doesn’t matter what they are – there is no right or wrong answer. Some people list things like God, Family, Financial Security, Education, Civil Rights, The Environment, Animal Welfare, Holistic Living, Status, Politics, Power … those are just examples … it can be anything that is intrinsically important to your every day life here on Earth. Be brutally honest about this. If you do not know what your top 5 core values are, pick at least 3 … but five is the goal.  Think about it, pray about it if you’re inclined to do so, but don’t take too long.  Usually the first things that pops into the brilliant head of yours are pretty close to the answers you seek.

NOW … once you figure out what these ever elusive core values actually are … align your daily activities with them. Align your finances with them.  Align your attention and your effort to line up with those established core values. If you are not spending your time, energy and money on the things that are important to you at your core, then you are spinning your wheels and wasting your time. I’m not asking that you necessarily share these with me, unless you just want to for accountability.  However, I do highly encourage you to share them with SOMEONE, especially your spouse or life partner, if you have one. Heck, maybe they need to do this too.

Being in balance is an awesome thing, beautiful in fact.  Yet knowledge is key.  You cannot balance your to-do list and core values if you have no clue what they even are in the first place.

Everyday Tonic: Apple Cider Vinegar

Great blog …

New Fit Caveman

“It burns so good. That’s how I know it’s working” Nick B

Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is a super substance, a true health tonic made from apples and yeast to produce a fermented concoction that does a variety of wonders for our health. In addition to its beneficial enzyme and probiotic content,  the process yields acetic acid, a healthy acid that has an alkaline effect.

Back pocket fact: Vinegar means “sour wine” in French. Pretty neat huh? Moving on…

So what is so great about this stuff? Here’s a list:

  1. Weight loss

    Apple cider vinegar speeds up the metabolism, reduces water retention, and my favorite, kills junk food cravings. An ounce of apple cider vinegar swigged from the bottle or mixed in a glass of water first thing in the morning does wonders for keeping the appetite in check.

  2. Lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar

    This vinegar has a proven antihypertensive effect…

Advice From a Farmer

farmeradviceBack in 2013, I posted a meme on my ‘fan’ page back about an old farmer and his advice. Much to my surprise it has been shared over 32,000 times and has nearly 1,000 comments, and it still gets traction, present day, in 2017.  This blows my mind.  You never know what will go viral and what people will appreciate.  This leads me to the conclusion that I must put this wise and sage advice into a blog post. So here we go.

Old Farmer’s Advice:

  • Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
  • Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
  • Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
  • A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
  • Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.
  • Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.
  • Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
  • Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
  • It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
  • You cannot unsay a cruel word.
  • Every path has a few puddles.
  • When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
  • The best sermons are lived, not preached.
  • Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.
  • Don’t judge folks by their relatives.
  • Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  • Live a good, honorable life… Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.
  • Don’t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.
  • Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.
  • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
  • Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
  • The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.
  • Always drink upstream from the herd.
  • Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
  • Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.
  • If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.
  • Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.  Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
  • Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Which one is your favorite?  What would you add?  Now my biggest question is which tractor picture is better, the old man or me? Can I get so lucky as to have this blog post go viral like that meme did? At any rate; you can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl.  Yes, people, I was raised in a hay field (for the most part).
